Deep Physics MSc Projects — Skoltech MSc class of 2020 

We still have two openings to advise MSc students.   Deep learning and quantum computing. We have several ongoing and new projects to select from that apply deep learning to understand physics.  We also use statistical mechanics and quantum theory as a mathematical tool to understand e.g. the informatic properties of deep neural networks.  For example, quantum computers provide new classes of neural networks that appear to be exponentially difficult to simulate using classical computers; on going work is geared towards refining quantum deep learning algorithms.   Applications of deep learning to predict properties of quantum systems Enhancement of deep learning algorithms using real-world quantum computers and programable quantum simulators[…]

MIT-MISTI-Skoltech Quantum Interns 2019

Following the success of last years MIT PhD Student interns (Dax Koh and Mason Biamonte), Skoltech Deep Quantum Labs is seeking MIT student applicants to the MIT-MISTI summer exchange program. Students should be pursuing a thesis in Quantum information theory, quantum information processing and associated topics Stochastic physics, complex networks and associated topics as they relate to quantum theory Machine learning applied to physics Applicants must be currently enrolled at MIT.  Successful applicants will join the diverse international lab lead by Prof Jacob Biamonte.  The lab has ongoing projects related to the theory of tensor networks, machine learning applied to quantum physics, using quantum computers to accelerate machine learning tasks,[…]

Postdoctoral Fellowships – Skoltech (Modern Quantum Theory)

Deep Quantum Labs is in the ongoing process of a expansion planned over the next several years as we continue to establish resident based international leadership in several core areas of theory related to quantum physics, the physics of information and with some specific focus on (i) simulation, (ii) quantum enhanced machine learning and (iii) the simulation of quantum systems using classical computers. We are seeking Research Scientist(s) to join our lab (Level I, II or III depending on experience) with some particular focus in this call on young applicants just finishing their PhD’s.  We offer internationally competitive compensation, including a housing allowance (international applicants), medical insurance and a sign-on[…]

Administrative Support Staff – two positions 

Administrative Support Staff – two positions  Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking talented administrators (x2) to optimize management procedures, increase management capacity and to preform some translations from English into Russian.   Successful candidates would be extremely organized and ready to join an extremely focused and disciplined team.  They will work closely with the team-PI to augment management capacity: to fine-tune, to organize and to oversee our internal procedures and processes, such as our calendar, our purchasing requests, and our compliance with various entities and our reporting. Ideal candidates would be smart and adaptable, able to type and also be willing to learn new computer programs (such as media Wiki and advanced[…]

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions 

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions  Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking two highly-talented and fast thinking developers (level depends on experience) to utilize our new supercomputing facility.  This facility is maintained and operated by CDISE (Skoltech) and opens the door to large-scale internationally competitive simulations of physical systems (500000+ NVidia – Volta – GPU cores and 2000 CPU cores). Ideal candidates should have some experience in scientific programming and some experience with high-performance parallel computing (for example OpenMP and MPI libraries – better Cuda, OpenCL and OpenACC); candidates would have mastered the Linux platform; they would be highly familiar with leading contemporary programming languages such as[…]
